In case you missed it: MHCA to offer "Use of the Temporary Nurse Aide Program to assist with crisis staffing"

Back by popular demand, MHCA will re-run the educational program “The time is now! Use of the Temporary Nurse Aide Program to assist with crisis staffing” on January 13, 2022 from 1:00-2:30PM. 1.5 CEUs will be offered for those who attend the program in full. Please note, this is a repeat offering of the program presented in November. 

The Temporary Nurse Aide, authorized for use during staffing shortages by Maine Division of Licensing and Certification, gives CNA employers unprecedented hiring and training flexibilities in this notoriously difficult to fill role. Recently, DHHS sent out a memorandum that allows for the use of such individuals to count toward state staffing ratios. In addition, DHHS has allowed for staffing ratio waiver requests to assist in the transition of hospital patients to nursing homes across the state. This program will review the free AHCA temporary nurse aide program, provide a template policy, implementation guide and review the necessary steps to stay compliant utilizing this option.
